India. Dreaming of Varanasi

Thoughts about India worried the author long before the trip itself, which lasted six months — obsessions, dreams, reveries… Much of what was happening with Victor in Odessa, and then in different parts of India, starting with the city of death and life, eternity and existence, the city of Varanasi, sacred to Hindus and pilgrims from around the world, influenced both the photography itself and the final selection and author’s printing of the shots significant to Ratushny. The efforts in creating this exhibition, including the preconceptions about this unknown journey, are known only to the author and those close to him. Alive and dead.
